Natural Remedies of Polycythemia Vera

The effect and complications of Polycythemia can be reduce by some natural products listed below
Kiwi Fruit:
The Use of Kiwi fruit is found very helpful in platelet reduction.
Grape Juice:
Researchers have studied that the use of Purple Grape Juice may help in reducing the risk of blood clots. Purple Grape Juice; somehow have the ability to unstick thickly populated blood platelets.
Green Tea:
Use of Green Tea is also found very encouraging. Those who are using green tea have found decrease in their symptoms.
Dark Chocolate:
At the XIX Congress of the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis, held in the UK in July 2003 a study from Ninewells Hospital, Scotland, was presented about Dark Chocolate, which is quite interesting.
It was reported that Dark chocolate inhibits platelet clumping (aggregation), a major cause of blood clots (thrombi) that trigger heart attacks and stroke.
Thirty subjects were randomized to receive 100 grams of white chocolate, milk chocolate, or dark chocolate. Four hours later, blood samples of each group were tested in vitro to see if chocolate intake modified platelet aggregation. While white chocolate had no effect and milk chocolate showed a trend towards reducing clumping, dark chocolate inhibited platelet aggregation by 92%. Of the three types of chocolate, dark chocolate has the highest content of flavonoids, known to inhibit cyclooxygenase (COX1) that helps block platelet aggregation.
The researchers suggest that dark chocolate has potential to reduce thromboembolism and cardiovascular diseases.
Vitamin E:
Vitamin E is known as anti-thrombin. It circulates in the blood and prevents platelet aggregation or clots occurring inside the vessel, but does not interfere with the normal clotting process in wounds or with normal healing. In fact, it actually accelerates healing of burns and wounds.
Of course, Vitamin E does not have the possible side effects of aspirin. Sesame oil further reduces the risk of thrombi.
